  1. TurkeyFeathers... We need serious details and videos of the helicopter hunt!!! My hunting buddy wants to do that in the worst way. I do see a bunch of public land in PA when I drive through. I have often wondered about the pigs also on the public land. Might be the way to go. I did the pay to pig hunt last year and am not returning for a hunt like that. Once was more than enough.
  2. Pretty good links Belo. I find this book to be quite helpful. It goes soup to nuts for smaller home orchards, including a section on pruning. I also order all my trees from this nursery. Good stock and good prices. Schlabach's Nursery. If you order something like 100.00 of stuff they throw this book in for free. I have some Asian pears from here that are monsters. Pay attention to the root stocks if you order. Most nurseries I speak to dont have a clue when I ask them the root stock. I usually prune during snow goose season in march. I dont like pruning in Feb as its still very cold and I get concerned about damage. Regarding not getting apples one year. This could be due to over cropping. If one year you have a huge crop, the following year you may get none as the tree spent all its energy creating the massive crop and has nothing left for the following year. THINNING is key in this scenario. https://www.amazon.com/BACKYARD-FRUIT-PRODUCTION-David-Schlabach/dp/0976508109
  3. Good stuff to know! Making me feel better and better. She does eat bugs. She likes to try and catch flies out of the air. Shes batted spiders around like a cat. Its funny to watch.
  4. Hmmmmmmm. Had not even thought about porn but OK I see it being possible now after reading the subject!! I'm glad to know that the saliva is potentially expelling the toxins. Not sure what I would do without my duck hunting partner. Though she does have this very bad habit of picking up spent shells and chewing them. I gotta pick up the shells quicker.
  5. This video I found shows one of my favorite techniques. You can do serious damage to someones arm this way. Once the arms is broken, you have position to the nose, face, knee, kick the ribs, and/or twisting the arm out of the shoulder socket. Serious bodily damage can be done quickly. Mostly first half of the vid shows the arm break move. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if5zQgYlThg
  6. I find it interesting to contrast different styles and most of the clip show a style much different than what I trained. The theme in the clip by bill is to brute force punches and rely on body strength vs a number of Gung Fu styles that, done correctly, add power from the ground. Mostly the guy at the end is whacking the bag with his arms, about 9:38. If you watch his feet you can see he picks them up just before punching. In some styles, this is a HUGE no no. I couldn't find a great image to show ground power but found an OK one here: https://www.businessinsider.com/kung-fu-photos-shaolin-monastery-china-2019-11 Check the feet. Mostly flat to the ground. This concept adds serious power to one who does not have intense strength. Bill not meant negative. Meant as an observation.
  7. I got home last night and was worried I would find her in a bad state. She greeted me normally, jumping and whining and wagging her tail. I let her out to do her business and took my headlamp with me. She squatted down with no issue and left a big ole steamer. Nothing looked abnormal. She ran around like usual and eventually inside we went. She inhaled her dinner like usual. I then checked her mouth, gums, teeth, throat best as possible. Only thing I saw was yellow build up on her front teeth. Didnt seem abnormal to me. I poked, prodded, tapped etc her mouth and her belly area looking for reaction from her. Nothing. I watched her mouth and didnt see anything leaking out. Where she laid her head I went and checked periodically for wetness. Nothing. The only hint she had something a little bit still was now and again (once every hour or two roughly) she would lick her lips. I think she was still producing a bit more than usual saliva but a lick now and again took care of it instead of it leaking out all over the place. She seems extremely fine and I opted not to go to the vet. I also found a great website on dogs eating fireworks! Listed specifically was sparklers, which was what she might have picked up. If no signs after 8 hours then there is no concern according to this article. I essentially ruled out any type of fireworks poison with that. It also said she needed to eat a quantity in order to have serious adverse affects. Since she may have only picked up one part of one, it didnt seem this could have done much to her. Im going to keep my eye on her for a while yet, but whatever was happening looks to be going away and nearly gone. Maybe it was a small piece of sparkler that moved through her body, maybe she got a burn on her mouth, maybe she ate something else. I did have a house full of people and another dog around for the weekend as well. Im happy as a clam she is OK.
  8. My Lab is turning six in a few months. Thinking back, she likely picked up/ate a piece of spent 4th of July type sparkler on Saturday night. I am not certain she ate it or just picked it up. I thought she picked it up and dropped when I told her to. If this is the cause, I would think she would show signs before 3 days. That was Saturday night and she shows sign of this on Tuesday night. I wonder a piece of sparkler is stuck somewhere. Im getting more and more nervous now.
  9. Last night I noticed my lab was literally dripping saliva all over the place. It was constant drip drip drip and the floor and blanket got real wet. This is not her drooling for food. She drools and has long pieces hanging from her mouth when she picks up food scent. This was different. Anyone have this happen before????? Im not usually one to run to the doc immediately but I must say this is a bit concerning. Im thinking take her to the vet tonight if she still is doing this after 24 hours. EDIT: Scary shit after googling. She has her appetite, good energy. As of last night, I notice nothing different about her behavior other than the saliva.
  10. A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married. She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course of their marriage. Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week Can you do this?" The husband thought for a moment and replied,.. "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Friday's, I fish!
  11. This one is pretty good also. A husband and wife were sitting around one day drinking a bottle of wine. The husband turns to his wife and says, "I bet you can't tell me something that will make me both happy and sad at the same time." After thinking about it a few minutes the wife looks at her husband and says, "Your pecker is bigger than your brothers!"
  12. Ho Chow calls into work. “Hey, I no come work today, I really sick. Got headache, stomach ache and legs hurt, I no come work.” The boss says, “You know something Ho Chow, I really need you today. When I feel sick like you do, I go to my wife and ask her for sex. That makes everything better and I go to work. You try that.” Two hours later Ho Chow calls again. “I do what you say and I feel great. I be at work soon…… You got nice house.”
  13. Ughhhhh. Went to sleep Sunday night with a bit of a sniffle, woke up with full blown cold/flu some shit. Damn wind Sunday out duck hunting really got me. Not sure I can make it to GTG.. Im going home from work early tonight. My home remedy is a bottle of honey jack, some lemon juice and some natural herbs. Lets hope it works for Thursday.
  14. I unearthed a box of hunting items this weekend that was stuffed in a closet. Lots of lead from the good old days. Slugs and slugs and slugs for 12 and 20. A few backtags, my old duck call, arrow knocks, old WASP blades. A veritable treasure trove. I was really hoping this was it for my three lost goose bands. If they were anywhere, it would have been here. I am afraid they are in the landfill somewhere. The best item I think I found was the receipt from my fathers 20 Ithaca featherlite. My mom and I went to Creekside in 1982 to pick it up for xmas.
  15. Closed the season this weekend. Saturday was slow. Saw a few and got no shots. Sunday was better, but not great. Saw wayyyyy more ducks Sunday but out of range. I managed to get two shots, and splashed one bird. That was it within range. They are flaring due to something. Going to change things up with decoy spread next year and see how it goes.
